Professional Eye Shadow Palettes
“If you're interested in trying the palette, here are my pros and cons: Pros: Neutral, versatile shades; pigment, price Cons: 3 shimmers, some fallout”
Shadow Eye Makeup
“They go on so smoothly without bits of shadow falling on your face. I can’t wait to try a few more colors”
Plum Eye Shadow
“I own plum and cobalt and after loving then I got 2 other shades from their website”
Green Eye Shadow
“It also blends out beautifully. I would say that the green satin shade leans more of a forest green than olive on the eye, especially when blended out, and becomes more of an olive tone with the shimmer layered over the whole thing”
Neutral Eye Shadow
“I would definitely recommend this to anyone considering a good quality neutral toned eye shadow”
Waterproof Eye Shadow
“I have been using this as a part of my daily eye routine. It has amazing longevity!!! I would even go as far to say waterproof if you apply it liberally”
Easy Eye Shadow
“I appreciate that it glides on without tugging on my eye. It will be hard to go back to drugstore eyeliner especially as I am going into my 30s and much more mindful of how kind I am to my eyes”
Red Glitter Eye Shadow
“I love this color on top of a dark brown or red-plum. The red glitter is beautiful and has minimal fallout”
Dark Smokey Eye Makeup
“Praise the makeup gods! Not the type of product I would use for detailed work...but great for tight lining the upper and lower lash line or for smokey looks”
Light Eye Makeup
“It is metallic (but not too gold) and makes my light eyes pop. Best described as a brown with gold fleck to it”
